Movie theatre “butter”

So apparently a lot of movie theatres don’t actually put any real butter onto their popcorn.  There’s a food additive called “flavacol” that provides the buttery flavour without actual butter.  Vegans actually get real excited about this because there’s no real butter in the popcorn.

One benefit of movie theatre “butter” is that it has a very low water content, which means that the popcorn won’t get soggy.  So now you know.

The High Midichlorian Count of Star Wars #1

I’m a pretty big Star Wars fan. Not huge, exactly. I mean, I haven’t read many of the novels. I don’t really know who Mara Jade is. I couldn’t tell you what species Darth Maul is. But, if we’re sticking to just the movies, I know my stuff. Another area of Star Wars lore that I’m pretty deficient in is the comic books. I’m sure some have been great over the years, but at this point they all seem to be kind of filler. Continue reading

Ant-Sized Expectations for Ant-Man

I’m a Marvel junkie, so I try to see their new movies as soon as possible. Usually, it’s sometime on opening weekend. Sometimes, if it’s something that hasn’t quite caught my full attention (Thor 2, for example) I’ll wait for cheap Tuesday. That is what happened this week with Ant-Man. And, like Thor 2, I was pleasantly surprised. Continue reading

Comic Con Trailer Round Up

The comic event of every year just came to an end. While I’ve never been to San Diego Comic-Con it’s hard to miss all the news and events that come out of it every year. I figured that I should discuss a few of the things that caught my eye. Before we get too far though, I feel like I should make a bit of a disclaimer: I didn’t watch any Star Wars stuff. I’ve loved the trailers so far, and I’ve decided to make an effort to avoid learning much more about the new movie before I see it. Continue reading

A Jurassic Sized Disappointment

I know last time we talked I said that I didn’t have much to say about Jurassic World, but I’ve changed my mind. I still think it’s a very entertaining movie. My grumble is with the characters. None of them are terribly interesting. Except, I guess, maybe the dinosaurs. And even then, I think that has more to do with projection than actual personality. Continue reading

Review: Heroes of the Storm

Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard’s free-to-play MOBA (multi-player online battle arena), which is basically an action/strategy brawler with a focus on teamwork.  Featuring the classic matchup of red versus blue, two opposing teams stomp across a map where they go after map objectives and engage in massive team fights.

Axis Vs. Spider-Verse

Let’s just get this out of the way: I saw Jurassic World. And so did everyone else in the world, apparently. I enjoyed it for what it was, but it’s not as special as that first movie. I’m sure in 15 years we’ll be reading all sorts of stuff about how it means the world to people, but for now I just don’t have much to say about it. Instead, I’m going to talk about two Marvel crossovers that I’ve been reading. Continue reading

Graham Grumbles a Review of Daredevil

It occurred to me today that I haven’t gone into much detail about my thoughts on the Daredevil TV series. In fact, my mini-grumble where I mentioned it spent more time on the still uncast and unscheduled Iron Fist series. So, this time I’m going to dedicate an entire grumble to DD’s show. Continue reading
